Shaping change together

As the economy becomes increasingly digitised and networked, the number of links in development, production and sales, both nationally and globally, is increasing. Plattform Industrie 4.0 involves all of the relevant stakeholders and enables them to communicate.


Background to the Plattform Industrie 4.0

The guiding principle of the Plattform Industrie 4.0 is a coordinated design of the upcoming digital structural change in the industry.


Help shape Industrie 4.0: Activities and participation

The implementation of Industrie 4.0 is still in its infancy. Providers, suppliers and users in Germany now have the chance to participate actively in codeterming the direction. An open dialogue between business, politics, academia, trade unions and society, as well as numerous opportunities for participation, lead to more transparency, understanding and the best solutions for the Industrie 4.0.


Consistent focus on needs of small and medium-sized businesses

In order to find feasible solutions for the many technical, cultural, competitive and socio-political aspects of Industrie 4.0, the platform has been working strongly result-oriented from the outset. In addition, the focus is on core issues such as standards, work, security, legal and reasearch.


Plattform Industrie 4.0 administrative office

The administrative office organises and coordinates the activities of Plattform Industrie 4.0. It provides information about the progress made and is the central contact point for business, politics and the media.
